What is the reputation points for? I was just curious. Thanks for letting me know.

Karma points, you get them when someone agrees or likes what you posted. I'm sure the mods will fill you in further about the karma system.

I think it is a lovely way to show appreciation and acknowledgement for those who have posted something helpful or meaningful to someone else.

Just to add to what Sattie and Susan have said, the points themselves do not do anything.

They are just a way to pat someone on the back for a posting that you like or agree with. They make people feel good!

Click on the User CP button on top of this page and it will take you to another page that will show you your karma points.

I could not give someone karma points a second time to someone--the program would not let me. Is that true or is it a matter of time that needs to pass?
Thanks, Pie Susan

You have to spread it around Susan. I think you have to do like 10 other people before giving the same person karma again.

The system wants you to "spread the karma around", so you have to give karma to other people first (I think it was/is five) before you can give it to the same person. Mods, please correct me if I am wrong.
